About My Family

I am originally an Indiana Hoosier. After Indiana, I lived in Iowa for six years and have been in Jacksonville, Fla., for the past three years. Holly and I have been married for 22 years and have three children: Josiah (16), Abram (12) and Nevaeh (10).

I like to exercise, play basketball, volleyball, Xbox games, travel, hike, camp, evangelize and disciple others.

About My Church Plant

I served for 10 years as a staff pastor in Indiana and did a short church planting stint there, too. I planted a church in Iowa, where I served for five years.

Our church launched in October 2021, and God has been faithful in many ways.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom we speak. Pray that through this ministry, more people would come to saving faith and live on mission. Pray for stamina and longevity for ministry amidst attacks from the enemy.


Build relationships with missionaries and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Learn birthdays and anniversaries, so you can send gifts and cards.
Learn the ministry strategy and context, so you can provide relevant resources. Support a missionary financially.
